Description

This application is a continuation, of application Ser. No. 07/640,265, filed Jan. 11, 1991, now abandoned.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

This invention pertains to hair ornaments and more particularly to a multi-purpose device that can retain ponytails, braids and the like and serve as a decoration.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Body ornaments such as bracelets and necklaces and decorative hairstylings are extremely important to an individual s appearance. The adoption of long hair in the form of ponytails, braids and the like can be very desirable. Although ponytails or braids are typically held up by circular rubberbands, hair is often difficult to remove from the rubber band and can often become tangled within the elastic rubberband when trying to pull out the ponytail or braid through the rubber band loop.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is an object of this invention to provide a multi-purpose ornament that can serve as an ornamental structure for gathering hair into a cylindrical mass such as ponytails, braids and the like.

It is another object of the invention to provide an improved device for retaining long hair in a defined pattern on a person's head without entangling the hair when the device is removed.

It is a further object of the invention to provide for this device to serve as a decoration for the arm, wrist, or other body part.

The invention includes a specially designed member for receiving the shaft of a cylindrical mass of hair. The member also includes a means for releasably engaging the hair to the member so that the cylindrical mass of hair is gathered in a stylish arrangement. A lock is provided that is used to hold the member tightly against a body part.

The planar member may optionally have defined within it an aperture in the shape of a preselected design. When an aperture is included in the member, it may be surrounded on all sides by the planar member.

The multi-purpose hair ornament is preferably made of a resilient material so that it can be molded to fit a cylindrical mass of hair or a body part. The member includes an elastic retainer that wraps around the hair shaft or body part and binds the hair or body part to the resilient member. A method of retaining a cylindrical mass of hair includes gathering the hair into a cylindrical mass, placing the mass in cooperation with the planar member, engaging the member to the hair by wrapping the elastic retainer around the hair, and locking the elastic retainer to the planar member.

FIG. 2 illustrates a perspective view of a second embodiment of this invention.

FIG. 3 illustrates a perspective view of a device of this invention in position on a person's head with the mass of hair being retained and locked into place.

FIG. 4 illustrates a perspective view of a third embodiment of this invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

This invention pertains to a multi-purpose hair ornament that can also be used on a body part. The term "body part" is meant to include parts of the body such as fingers, wrists, and arms as well as hair. Preferably, the ornament is used as a hair-gathering piece for retaining a cylindrical mass of hair. When the ornament is released, the hair does not become entangled in rubber bands or other elastic straps. The invention can also serve as a body decoration such as an arm band or necklace. The term "cylindrical mass of hair" is meant to include hair arrangements such as ponytails, braids, twists, pigtails, and the like as these terms are known to those skilled in the art. When used as a body decoration, the device is preferably worn on the wrist as a bracelet or wrist band.

FIG. 1 illustrates the multi-purpose hair ornament 10 of this invention. The ornament is formed of a planar member 12 having front 14, back 16, and finite thickness 18. As a hair-gathering and retaining piece, the ornament is bent to the curvature of the cylindrical mass of hair on which it is utilized. Member 12 is preferably fabricated from resilient polymers such as polyamide, polyacrylate, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyethylene, polytetrafluoroethylene, acrylic co-polymers with styrene and/or butadiene and the like. The size and thickness of member 12 can vary, depending upon the particular application. Member 12 varies in thickness from about 0.010 inches to about 0.080 inches (2.0 mm). Preferably, it is about 1/16 of an inch thick (1.58 mm).

The ornament includes a cut out section or aperture 20 defined within the planar member 12. Aperture 20 can be in any desired shape such as a heart, star or any other design. The aperture 20 functions both as a purely ornamental design and as a means for reducing the amount of solid material to enhance the flexibility of member 12. The aperture can be surrounded by the planar member 12 on all sides of the aperture as shown in FIG. 1.

A means for releasably engaging the cylindrical mass of hair onto the member is also included. The means comprises an elastic retainer 22 such as an elastic band or other stretchable piece that is affixed at one end to a position 24 on the outside periphery of the planar member 12. The other end of retainer 22 terminates in a loop or other arrangement 26 which is designed to engage with a lock 28 also affixed to the outer periphery of the planar member. Lock 28 is spaced apart at some distance away from the attachment position 24 for the elastic retainer. Preferably, lock 28 is affixed to the planar member on a side of the member opposite from the position 24 where the retainer is affixed. Lock 28 and attachment position 24 then define an axis A--A of member 12, as illustrated in FIG. 1. Lock 28 can be any arrangement that engages with the terminal end of the retainer. For example, if the terminal end of the retainer is a loop 26, the lock 28 can be a simple clip or slit shaped and sized to fit into the side of the planar member.

In the specific embodiment illustrated, both ends of retainer 22 are fitted to the center of a short, metal bar 23. Attachment position 24 is a hole defined within the planar member. Bar 23 can pivot about its center of attachment and, in its unmanipulated state, is maintained in a position substantially at right angles to the elastic retainer 22. The retainer is affixed to member 12 by manipulating bar 23 so that it can be threaded through attachment position 24. The other end of retainer 22 is engaged with an identical metal bar 23. Lock 28 is also a hole in member 12 through which the free end of retainer 22 is threaded.

FIG. 2, illustrates an alternate embodiment in which aperture 20 does not need to be surrounded on all sides by the planar member. Reference numbers are identical to those of FIG. 1 for clarity, except where indicated. This embodiment is particularly advantageous when the ornament is used as a hair-gathering device since there is a gripping surface 15 for the fingers which makes manipulation of the device easier.

FIG. 3 illustrates the ornament in use as a hair-gathering device. For clarity, reference numbers are identical to those in FIGS. 1 and 2 except where indicated. The shaft 30 of a cylindrical mass of hair 32 is gathered perpendicular to axis A--A of the planar member 12. The elastic retainer 22 is wrapped one or more times around the shaft of the hair and its free end 26 is locked into the planar member by threading metal bar 23 through lock 28 to retain the hair in place against the planar member. The number of wraps is determined by the thickness of the shaft of hair. Moreover, because retainer 22 is elastic, member 12 can be bound to the hair with any desired degree of tightness. The member can be adjusted at any distance along the cylindrical mass of hair although most preferably is disposed adjacent to the scalp.

The resilient nature of the planar member enables it to be shaped to fit the hair shaft. Member 12 can thus be formed substantially in a U-shape or inverted U shape in which the hair shaft is disposed within the curve of the U. To release the ornament, retainer 22 is removed from lock 28 and unwrapped to its full length. This procedure provides a convenient method of releasing the ornament without having to pull the entire length of a shaft of long hair through the circular opening of a rubber band.

FIG. 4 shows a third embodiment of the multi-purpose hair ornament of the invention used as a hair-gathering device 34 which includes a planar member 36 having a front 38, back 40 and finite thickness 42. The member 36 is shaped in a preselected design which can be in any desired shape such as a heart, star and the like. Planar member 36 is solid and can be made from the cut-out aperture of the piece embodied in FIG. 1.

An elastic retainer 44 is affixed at a first end to an attachment position 46 on the outer periphery of the planar member. A lock 48 is affixed to the planar member, preferably on a side opposite to that of the retainer 44, the attachment position 46 and locking means 48 defining an axis B--B, as shown. In the embodiment illustrated, retainer 44 terminates in metal bar 23, as described above in FIGS. 1 and 2. In use as a hair-gathering piece, axis B--B of the member is engaged perpendicular to the cylindrical mass of hair. The elastic retainer 44 is wrapped around the mass of hair one or more times and the free end thereof is locked into the planar member.

It will be readily appreciated by those skilled in the art that the use of this invention as a body decoration such as a bracelet is exactly analogous to its use as a hair-gathering piece. Referring again to the figures, the surface of a wrist, arm, or other body part is placed perpendicular to axis A--A and B--B of FIGS. 1 or 2 and 4, respectively. The piece is bent to the curvature of the particular body part on which it rests. The retainer 22,44 is wrapped one or more times around the body part and the free end of the retainer is engaged with the lock 28,48. The ornament is held against the body part in this manner and the number of wraps is determined by the thickness of the body part and the degree of retention desired.

Although the present invention has been described with reference to particular embodiments, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that variations and modifications can be substituted therefor and not departing from principles and spirit of the invention.
